I find the Thrifty deal e-mails very funny. Here are some specials from their latest e-mail:

C’mon, you can’t deny that these deals are great. So why not book before it’s too late? While we never stop offering you new deals, these deals below won’t last forever.

Get 5% off the weekly rental of a Full-size car.

Get a Standard SUV for $47.99/day.

Rent a Convertible for $299.99/week.

Perhaps these might be deals in some expensive markets. They need to hire some marketing people from Groupon.

I agree that "deals" like these offer little to no incentive to choose Thrifty. I figure they're examples of drip marketing-- excuses to send out periodic communication to keep the brand name fresh in people's minds.
